Cold War II

Why America cannot treat China like the USSR

Two decades after the fall of the USSR, there is a new Eastern, Communist challenge to American world dominance. The parallels are obvious but China is not the USSR and Washington cannot revert to Cold War thinking. Proxy wars and military threats will not work with China, especially now America is no longer at the top, writes Sourbah Gupta.

I am amazed by Ohikhobo's remedy. I Have had herpes for over 6 years with frequent outbreaks. Sometimes I average 2-3 times per month. Before one breakout could end, the next would begin. Nothing has helped me. I came online in search for a possible way to see how I can fight this virus so I found Ohikhobo here online after seeing a lot of testimonies of how he cured herpes and other diseases with natural herbs so I decided to give it a try I only took his remedy for two weeks and I was completely cured. I recommend Ohikhobo's remedy to anyone suffering from herpes that wants to be completely cured too.

Doesn't US owe China on some aspect? Not being pro or anti China though.

Kennan never intended his “prudent Realism” analysis to serve as the policy foundation for the Cold War (motivating American militant “Containment” and the Soviet’s counter with oppressive “Spread of Communism”) but so it was. And it almost ended up with the final solution for humanity (during the Cuban Missile Crisis and other nuclear confrontations).

Very interesting read. This was the first time I had thought about the similarities and differences between these two bi-polar moments in international relations. Is there much about this out there? I wonder how rigid the foreign policy 'blob' in Washington really is? If they are stuck in Cold War thinking, there is going to be a lot to learn over the next 50 years. Fascinating stuff.
